  • Easy access shore diving. Tide dependent, check your tables. If you study the map carefully and do not want to hire a guide, an experienced diver can do this easily. I suggest 3 days to cover the...

  • We were staying on Singer Island and our host recommended the free entry/ free parking Phil Foster Park for snoreling. We did our usual research, which included looking on Google Satellite maps...

  • We usually take the ferry to Peanut Island (highly suggest). This time we decided to try the public beach. It was excellent! Pros: 🐠Free parking. The boat launch area isn’t. 🐠Beach is easily accessible to transport any beach supplies you’ve brought 🐠The snorkeling 🤿 is epic! There are multiple rocky structures that are sunk roughly 40-50 yards off the beach which hold an abundance of fish and other sea creatures. We saw at least 100 different types of fish including 2 barracuda, a volleyball sized starfish⭐️, sting rays, grouper, and conch. 🐠It’s an area used for scuba diving certifications as well as first responder training. So the area is covered with people who are experienced in the water. Including life guard stands. 🐠Very kid friendly. Cons: 🐠There are trash cans but they were over filled. There wasn’t a lot on the beach but we did find a broken beer bottle when settling in. 🐠The parking can be hard to find if it’s busy. 🐠The water tends to rip in and around that area. I wouldn’t let my child just swim out alone. Suggestions: 🐠If you’re going away from the bridge, bring an umbrella. Everyone tends to park their stuff under the available palms and there aren’t many. 🐠Get there early for parking. It was crazy even on a Thursday. 🐠Bring an underwater camera!
  • I love going to the public beach at Phil Forster Park. Been going there since 2019. It is great for non-swimmers, toddlers and small children, and snorkeling. Also, they have a wheelchair accessible beach ramp and a brand new water wheelchair!! Just ask the lifeguard on duty and they will hand it out on a first-come-first serve basis. Since a strip of the beach is under the bridge, there's shade. And there's a small playground for little ones. In the mornings during the week you will have the beach almost to yourself!
